Boride ceramics as one of modern high-tech materials, due to the high melting point, high hardness, high oxidation resistance and wear resistance performance and as a hard tool materials, abrasive, corrosion resistant alloy additive, wear-resisting parts, at the same time the material and it has excellent electric properties, as inert electrode materials and high temperature electrical material and attaches great importance to by the people.


Introduction and application of boride ceramic materials


Introduction of boride ceramic materials


Boride ceramics belong to interspace phase compounds, and their chemical bond composition is relatively complex, including m-M metal bond, B-B covalent bond and B-M ionic bond, which determines that boride has a variety of characteristics from the microscopic level. At present, boride cermets are widely used in the coating field, such as binary, ternary and polyboride. The main preparation techniques are APS(atmospheric plasma spraying), HVOF(supersonic flame spraying), plasma cladding, laser cladding, argon arc cladding, induction cladding, vapor deposition and magnetron sputtering.


Among boride ceramics, SiB6, ZrB2, HfB2, TiB2, CrB, WB/WB2 are considered as the most promising boride ceramics due to their excellent properties. Binary boride ceramic materials are cost-effective and have excellent mechanical and physical and chemical properties. As functional materials, SiB6, ZrB2, HfB2, TiB2, CrB2 and other boride ceramics are widely used in wear resistance, corrosion resistance coatings, neutron absorption coatings and self-melting alloys, as well as ultra-high temperature coatings. In the steel industry, can be used for stainless steel coating.


Application of binary boride ceramics


SiB6 belongs to orthonormal system, space group Pnnm, and has calcium hexaboride cubic crystal structure. At present, SiB6 can be synthesized by elemental reaction and chemical vapor deposition. Sintering methods generally have no pressure sintering, hot pressing sintering, reaction hot pressing sintering and put point plasma sintering method. SiB6 ceramics have excellent thermoelectric properties, high strength, high melting point and low density, excellent high-temperature oxidation resistance, high hardness and wear resistance, and are a potential P-type semiconductor materials. At present, it is mainly used for thermal radiation coating, various standard abrasives and grinding cemented carbide. Also used as engineering ceramic materials, sandblasting nozzle, the manufacture of gas engine blades and other special-shaped sintered parts and seals, can also be used as anti-oxidant refractory materials.
